News and Events

ICPC Programming Contest

The Computer Science Committee has been involved with the participation of Atlantic Canadian students in the International Collegiate Programming Contest (ICPC). Teams from our universities have competed in multiple World Finals.

For 2020, a contest will be held in conjunction with the computer-science portion of the conference, to provide an optional warm-up / training opportunity for teams considering competing in the ICPC’s Northeastern North American division.

Visit the International Collegiate Programming Contest (ICPC) website for more information. You can also view results and problem sets from past programming competitions.

Awards

Thanks to the support of our generous conference sponsors, each year MSCS recognizes the achievements of some of Atlantic Canada’s top undergraduate and graduate computer students through a variety of awards.

About

The Computer Science division promotes the study of computer science in the Atlantic region, with the recruitment and support of students, faculty, and researchers as its primary focus.

The division is led by a committee, which consists of representatives from computer science programs at the universities in Atlantic Canada. The committee’s discussions focus on student recruitment, program offerings, and recent developments in computing science.

The annual conference is a venue for students, faculty, and researchers to present research projects and to discuss common issues and the latest developments and innovations.

The highlight of the annual conference is the programming competition, which previously was a preliminary round of the International Collegiate Programming Contest (ICPC). For 2020, while not required, the contest provides an excellent opportunity to practice and prepare for the first round of the ICPC.
